I just posted about a creative way a Non-Profit organization used their WordPress.com blog to get registrations for a webinar. It is so cool. Of course if you are on WordPress.org you can use a plug in like Event Registar or RSVP Maker. I know there are others and feel free to share them.
Meanwhile check out the post on adding a RSVP contact form to your WordPress.com blog platform.
Many Baby Boomers Collect Coins
Yes, there are Pinterest Boards that focus on Baby Boomers and their many interests. ! I have a listed 10 of them below. I know there are more. Many of the boards focus on baby boomer issues , hobbies plus more. But the board may not be named “baby boomer.” For example, I have a board just on African American Coins. Whereas, this Pinterest board is by a baby boomer it does not contain the words “baby boomer.”
Please, please if you have a board on Pinterest that focuses on an area of interest to baby boomers please share it so we can follow. Also, consider naming some of your boards with the key words “baby boomer.”
So, take a few minutes and visit boards below. Don’t worry you can still view them even if you do not have an account. But if you want to get started with and account let me know and I will send you an invite. I just need your email address. Enjoy!

Is Pinterest a booming social media site? Are baby boomers using Pinterest? Are baby boomer bloggers using Pinterest? How are baby boomers and baby boomer bloggers using it? Well I have decided to explore these questions with this series of posts. Isn’t that what we baby boomers do so well?
A recent article on a marketing blog shows some of the traffic stats on Pinterest and predict that it only going to go higher. Read the article on Marketing Proofs published today!
Personally, I have decided to go deeper into my study of Pinterest. Although I started an account and my hubby has to, I am exploring how others set up their boards and the kinds of things they pin. (Be sure to let us know if you are on Pinterest so we can follow.)
Ignite an excellent social media site in January provided a nice demographic breakdown of those pinning in Pinterest. They noted that many baby boomers are, like others, pinning home improvement, craft and travel ideas. Read Ignite’s post.
From my preliminary work on Pinterest I am captivated by how many baby boomer and blogging boards on Pinterest. As a result I am not only having fun but fun learning. So, in the next couple of postings I will share some of the boards and pins I have found that are by or about baby boomers on Pinterest.
Meanwhile, those of you who are thinking about jumping into the sea of Pinterest but need to know the basics. I have a book I am currently reading that I am finding super helpful. If any of you have other teaching aids and e-books on Pinterest please leave them in the comments.
Now if you want to get deeper into the marketing aspects you might want to read this one the book listed below by the same author. Actually, I am going to order it after I finish writing this post.
